Grief is never something you get over. 

You don't wake up one morning and say, 'I've conquered that; Now I'm moving on.' 

It's something that walks beside you every day, and if you can learn how to manage it and honour the person that you miss, you can take something that is incredibly sad and have some form of positivity

~Terri Irwin, American-Australian conservationist, television personality and author


It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart, we share the passing of our dear friend, Sue. 

As a servant to God, Sue adored her family, was a retired healthcare professional, an amazing fabric artist, a Veteran of Vendor Members Group, and a meaningful person.

Her supportive influence, good spirit, and infectious smile brought a sunny disposition to any outlook. Sue knew what to say, when to take control of a situation, and how to add a good chuckle 

while always in the best interest of others.

Just like the material she stitched, the fabric of Sue's core justified a greater purpose. Vendor Members Group finds comfort in knowing her legacy will live on through her fabric art (pictured) and how she innately enriched the lives of others.

Thank you, Sue. 

For your joyful presence, kindness, 

and the time we shared with you

For the blessings, engaging conversations, 

and endearing smiles you shared with us. 

For your devotion and passion to God, family, 

colleagues, friends, and fellow artisans. 

You will be deeply missed. 

You were truly one of a kind whom we loved.

Rest in peace, dear friend. You've been welcomed home.


Let the beauty of what you love be what you do
